Bella’s on a Road Trip

I made this card for the Bella contest, but I unfortunately I did not win. 🙁 The theme for the contest was summer fun. Cruiseabella is driving on her summer vacation road trip!

This was K&Co Happy trails designer paper for the road map. I added CTMH liquid glass (the same as SU’s crystal effects) to the entire car to make it shiny. The silver bumper on the car is the zig painty pen. The tires are shiny. They are colored with the black glaze pen from Sakura. Bella and the car are colored with various markers to match the papers, but I always use SU’s blush blossom marker for the skin. To make the ribbon slider with the sentiment I used the SU designer label punch, the slot punch to make the holes for the ribbon and circle punches for the back layer and for the sentiment layer. The ribbon is SU chocolate. The card stock is SU bashful blue for the base and chocolate chip for the layers. Everyday flexible phrases was used for the sentiment.

I made a 2nd version of this card that says “driving by with a Bithday “Hi” (from SU’s Loads of Love stamp set).
